Actress Taapsee Pannu and director Anurag Kashyap as of late said in a recent interaction that they want Twitter to boycott them and that they want to trend on the social networking app, very much like Akshay Kumar and Aamir Khan. As of late on Twitter, hashtags, for like, #BoycottAamirKhan #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha, #BoycottRakshaBandhan were moving on Twitter. Taapsee and Anurag have collaborated for Dobaara which will drop on August 19.
During a recent interaction with Siddharth Kannan, Taapsee and Anurag were inquired as to whether they get terrified when movies like Laal Singh Chaddha and Raksha Bandhan get boycotted via social media.
Responding to this, Anurag said that he feels left out for not trending on Twitter and said, “I want #BoycottKashyap to trend on Twitter.” Taapsee said, “Please everyone boycott our film Dobaaraa. Agar Aamir Khan aur Akshay Kumar boycott ho sakte hain (If actors like Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar are getting boycotted) then I also want to be in that league. What is this?” Anurag and Taapsee then together request their audience to boycott them, “Picture dekho na dekho magar boycott kar do (It doesn’t matter if you watch our film but please boycott us).”
During a recent media interaction Aamir responded to the trend and said, “I feel sad that some of the people who are saying this, in their hearts, they believe that I am someone who doesn’t like India. In their hearts, they believe, but it is untrue. I really love India. That’s how I am. It is rather unfortunate if some people feel that way. I want to assure everyone that it’s not the case so please don’t boycott my films, please watch my films.”
